What kind of art do you make?
The types of art I make are paintings, drawings, graphic design, poetry and writing.

How would you describe your style?
I have many styles, which stems from trying to remain flexible in my approach. Certain things dictate the way they should be presented. Sometimes, I don't even know the style a piece will be until it presents itself in the initial work up. Some things are worked out in advance though (drawn, redrawn, etc.). Since I've been doing graphic design, there's been another medium to explore.

What fascinates you?
The unknown. Also the unknowable.

What do you do when you're not making art?
I have trouble just sitting still (it happens here and there) so I like to be with friends. Anything that distracts me from contemplating the universe.

What's a dear object you'd like to make?
There are many. They shift in importance all the time. Is it possible to make an object out of a particular feeling?
